November 5, 2007 - Dry Tortugas National Park, Part 3

This is Hospital Key, to the east, is where they buried those who died at Fort Jefferson:

You can barely see Hospital Key in this photo:

Magnificent Frigatebirds, who only nest in the Dry Tortugas in the United States:

The waves and rocks make it look like a painting in the water.  Notice the two fish:

We came back to the beach:

A survey mark on the wall:

Those pipes are the exhaust from the generator providing the power here:

We finished the snorkeling and stopped to rest.  This telephoto of the neighboring key shows where the Magnificent Frigatebirds nest:

We had both brown pelicans and a Great Blue Heron to keep us entertained along with the terns and other smaller birds:

People do come with their own boats here.  Also you can tent camp for $3/night but need to bring your own water.

A couple views of the Great Blue Heron:

Bricks in the water from hurricanes:
